AbstractHelicopters achieve three-dimensional flight using a rotor capable of both collective and cyclic pitch. It was proposed that this type of propulsion system could propel and maneuver an underwater vehicle. A collective pitch and cyclic pitch propeller (CPCPP) was designed and developed as a full scale-working prototype for autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) propulsion. This paper discusses the design and construction aspects of the CPCPP.
